Financial Assistance for Parents
The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF) commenced in 2015 for four years and will provide payments for eligible students to attend camps, sports and excursions.
Families holding a valid means-tested concession card or temporary foster parents are eligible to apply. $125 per year is paid for eligible primary school students, with $225 per year paid for eligible secondary school students. A special consideration eligibility category also exists. Payments are made directly to the school and are tied to the student.
CSEF applications open from term one 2016. The program will again be promoted to families via school newsletters and websites.
Parents or legal guardians are required to submit a new CSEF application form each year.
It is expected that approximately 222,000 Victorian school students will directly benefit from the CSEF.
Victorian government Year 7 students (in 2017) who are CSEF recipients are also automatically eligible for a uniform package. For more information on this topic, please refer to the State Schools Relief or print the flyer
